18 Sep (Sun): NSS Kids’ Fun with Caterpillars & Butterflies at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

Open to the Public - Registration Needed

Join nine-year old butterfly guide Soh Zhi Bing to learn more about caterpillars: how they look, move and the kind of leaves they eat. Kids will get to see live caterpillars in action. Zhi Bing will then lead us around the park's compact and charming Butterfly Garden, lush with well-tended flowering shrubs and butterfly host plants. On a sunny day, expect to see beautiful butterflies such as the Plain Tiger, Blue Glassy Tiger, Lemon Emigrant, Common Grass Yellow and Tawny Coster. If we are lucky, Singapore's National Butterfly by popular vote, the Common Rose, might make an appearance as its host plant is found in the garden.

More details and registration on the NSS website.

Time: 9.30am - 11.30am
Cost: NSS Member: $5 per child, Non-Member: $10 per child. Fees will be collected on the spot. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to join in at no charge.
